The story of the show Family Guy revolves around a less than normal family in a less than normal world. With absurd and often spontaneous events The family Consists of six members Peter the father, Lois the mother, Stewie the homicidal baby, Chris the son, meg the daughter and Brian the dog. Family guy was canceled in 2002 but with runaway sales and huge rerun rating and fan demands gained enough attention and FOX brought it back in 2005 conclusion though it all seth macfarlane has has gone out of his way to show people that television comedy can still be funny and entertain people. And for years people have been trying to stop him weather its the F.C.C, parent, guardians, or critics. Seth is here to stay and with the release of his album "music is better than words" macfarlane has proved to us that he can go beyond family guy, american dad, or another R rated comedy about an inanimate object that can come to life. Seth has many that he has yet to show the world and gags that will keep us laughing and offending us. At and early age Seth discovered
that he wanted to draw at age 2 Seth was
drawing cartoons such as woody wood pecker
and Fred flintstone. seth is quoted as saying
"when i was old enough to ask the question
i was asking, how are cartoons made? how
do i do these?" by the time seth was nine he
was drawing his own comic strip in the local
kent newspaper. macfarlane continued to draw throughout high school and once he graduated in 1991 he enrolled at the rhode island school of design (RISD) to study video and animation. at the early start of his ambition career he considered working of Disney but changed his mind upon graduating he eventually caught the eye of the Hanna-barbeara production.(Now cartoon network) with his thesis film life of Larry which contained the beginning of what would be renamed family guy. His graduating from college made him make the decision to move to los angles to begin his career, Seth got a job working for Hanna-barbera as both an animator and and writer for shows such as johnny bravo, a cow and a chicken, and Dexter laboratory. Seth was enjoying his dream of writing and drawing but his heart was still with life of Larry executives at FOX saw a glimpse of it and offered Seth 50,000 dollars to craft a pilot for a show idea of his Seth was thrilled but but it started a creation of anxiety macfarlane quotes "i spent the next six months with no sleep and no life just drawing like crazy in my kitchen and doing this pilot" despite the limited budget he was able to convoy all the things he was hoping to put into especially its edgy humor FOX bought family guy in 1998 and began its premiere in the beginning of 1999 macfarlane was just 24 and already a executive producer of a cartoon show Despite the huge success of family guy which earned
macfarlane two prime time Emmy awards the show has received some controversy most member able is the down syndrome episode were the character Chris griffin has a crush on a girl with down-syndrome and the joke was that he mother was the govern of Alaska poking fun at Sarah palin she's been quoted as saying "the staff of family are cruel cold hearted people". other controversy go on calling family guy a rip off of the Simpsons. and over the years the F.C.C (Federal Communications Commission).

But through it all Seth blows it off calling it "its like getting hate mail from Hitler" Albums outside of television and film work, Seth macfarlane has found time to cultivate his love for singing and a big fan of retro style full orchestra and converted that sound and on September 27,2011 Seth released his debut album music is better than words this is seth woodbury macfarlane out of all the family guy characters seth plays
